Coming into Port

I am not much for sweet after dinner wines, but the more I taste and experience, the more I am beginning to like them.  I don't know if that's good or bad.

This Whitecliff Vineyard & Winery's 2007 Port is made from 100% Frontenac and the grape brandy was distilled from their Seyval.

Tasting notes one word - Craisin. Yes - a little cranberry, a little dried cherry and a juicy raisin on the finish. That juicy raisin finish is like taking a handful of Sunmaid Raisins and tossing them in your mouth.(like you did when your were a kid)  Sweet but not overly sweet was this Port.

It was nice to sit back an relax with this port after a wonderful dinner.
